The bromination of 5-alkyl(aryl)-3H-furan-2-ones and 5-alkyl(aryl)-3H-pyrrol-2-ones and also their derivatives takes place at the ethylene bond with the formation of 4-monobromo derivatives. N-Phenyl-3H-pyrrol-2-ones are brominated simultaneously at the ethylene bond of the heterocycle and at the phenyl substituent at the nitrogen atom.
